  • Board follows federal mandate to raise lunch price 10 cents
     
    The Higley Unified School District Governing Board complied with the federal requirements requiring a raise of 10-cent increase to elementary, middle and high school lunch prices beginning in July 2015 with the new school year.
     
    The price rate increases are required to follow the federal standard known as the “paid lunch equity requirement.” To meet the requirement that the district’s average paid lunch price be less than the difference between the free and paid federal reimbursement rates, a district must either raise lunch prices or subsidize meals through the use of nonfederal funds. This mandate is in place for at least the new two school years.
     
    This change amounts to the following lunch prices for the 2015/16 school year:
    Elementary and preschool: $2.55
    Middle school: $2.90
    High School: $3.05

  • Higley High and All Higley Schools Earn 'A' Ratings from
    Arizona Department of Education
     
    The Arizona Department of Education recently released school performance rankings based on spring 2014 AIMS scores. We are proud to announce that all elementary, middle and high schools in the Higley Unified School District earned “A” ratings.

    The news was announced as nearly 12,000 students in preschool through high school began their first day of the 2014-15 school year.
     
    For the last four years, the Arizona Department of Education has rated school performances with letter grades based on academic growth and student achievement. This is the fourth year in a row that the Higley Unified School District has earned an “A” grade. Higley Unified School District was the top point earner for large, public school districts in Arizona this year. In fact, five of our eight elementary schools are in the Top 10 percent of all K-6 schools in Arizona.
     
    “We are elated to share our ‘A’ grades with Higley families, the Towns of Gilbert and Queen Creek and the entire Valley,” said Superintendent Dr. Denise Birdwell. “It is a testament to the work of our teachers, staff, students and families. Finding out Higley is the top, large school district in the state brings recognition to the hard work of the entire Higley schools community. From students and their parents to the teachers, bus drivers, classroom aides and school principals, we wish to thank everyone for their efforts that contribute to making Higley the best district in the Valley.”

  • Reminder: Parking Permits 
     
    All cars in the student parking lot must have a parking permit for this year.  We will begin booting cars that are parked without a parking permit; which means that your car will not be drivable until you have purchased a $50 permit.
    Please ensure that you get this taken care of, as permits are now overdue.

  • Parentvue
     
    Parents can see student grades and attendance records through a system called “ParentVue.” Teachers post assignments and grades, along with daily attendance, on the system that can then be viewed by parents through a home computer or cell phone. Teachers post links to ParentVue (sometimes referred to as "Online grades") through their teacher webpages. You can also reach ParentVue through this link.

    To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
